Sleeping Beauties: Less than a week until the Met Gala 2024


In the heart of New York City, the Metropolitan Museum of Art will once again transform into a magical setting merging fashion and art for the highly anticipated Met Gala 2024.

Scheduled for Monday, May 6th, this event will mark the opening of the extraordinary spring exhibition “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion”. The Costume Institute Gala, commonly known as the Met Gala or Met Ball, serves as a fundraising event benefiting the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Established in 1948, this evening is annually themed, with guests expected to adhere to its theme. It begins with a cocktail hour followed by a formal dinner, all preceded by the iconic (but not always red) carpet parade.

The Exhibition

Additionally, from May 10th to September 2nd, 2024, the renowned New York museum will host an exhibition extending beyond tradition, exploring the concepts of rebirth and renewal in fashion. Using nature as a metaphor, this imagery will breathe new life into masterpieces from the museum’s collection through innovative technologies.

The Guests

Each year, numerous high-profile celebrities grace the event, and this year’s expected lineup appears to be incredibly rich, featuring names like Zendaya, Jennifer Lopez, Chris Hemsworth, and Bad Bunny, who will serve as co-hosts. Details of the official guest list for this eagerly anticipated event are still sparse, leaving us eagerly awaiting Monday.

The Theme

The exhibition’s theme will not only celebrate fashion history by showcasing some of the most exquisite archival designs but will also reference the natural world. Expect to see an incredible array of floral motifs, while some guests may opt for decidedly darker and more evocative themes.

This year’s event and exhibition are made possible through the support of TikTok, with the backing of prestigious fashion houses like Loewe and established entities like Condé Nast. Max Hollein, the Met’s director, anticipates a revolutionary experience, inviting guests to immerse themselves in the multisensory facets of the exhibited garments. Curator Andrew Bolton emphasizes the desire to breathe new life into fashion artworks, true “masterpieces.”
